Lot No. 197 (94th Auction)
Wyler Genève, Code R Flying Tourbillon GMT, Ref. Ref. 900.1, Cal. WT002, 43 x 52 mm, circa 2010

A gentleman's rare and almost as new tonneau-shaped Geneva wristwatch with second time zone, power reserve indicator, trust index sector and one-minute flying tourbillon - Limited edition no. 7 of 8 pieces - with two additional straps and original box
Case: titanium, screwed on glazed back, titanium buckle. Dial: anthracite, engine-turned. Movm.: 1/2 plate movement, pierced, polished and brushed three-arm cage for the one-minute tourbillon, Glucydur screw balance.

With its unique shock-protection functionality the Wyler Genève Tourbillon is perfectly equipped to withstand the daily wear and tear. The strong sandwich-structured titanium and carbon fibre case is further strengthened by an additional shock protection device on the tourbillon’s aluminium bridges. The Wyler trust indexes on the dial ensure that the wearer is always guaranteed an unrivalled level of precision.
Different to most crown protection systems the patented Wyler design attaches both sides of the crown to the case and the crown must be pulled out on both sides before it can be used.
The trust index at 3 o’clock displays the amplitude of the balance. If the watch is completely wound, the balance usually swings slightly wider than normal before stabilising. When the power reserve is nearly used up, the swing reduces dramatically. By winding the watch and keeping the hand in the middle of the trust index scale the wearer guarantees a perfect accuracy of the watch while ensuring that the watch is not overwound.
Its striking design, the excellent performance and the very limited production make the Wyler Genève, Code R Flying Tourbillon GMT a true classic.
